Innovative HVAC 2014 Products Show Promise for Homeowners
There are big things in store for HVAC 2014 products. Homeowners in Roswell looking for more efficient heating, cooling, plumbing and ventilation systems will delight in the innovative technologies that manufacturers of HVAC systems are releasing this year.
Here are the winners for HVAC 2014 innovations to come out of the 66th International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition held in New York City in January:
- Cooling efficiency will increase greatly for homes and commercial buildings with Emerson Climate Technologies’ Next Generation Copeland Scroll, which features a line of variable-speed compressors. With proper installation and sizing, the air-conditioning system can reach a seasonal energy efficiency ratio (SEER) of 25, and help air source heat pumps reach a heating seasonal performance factor (HSPF) of 13 or more. Both numbers reach nearly the highest rating potential in the industry. But high efficiency is not the product’s only benefit. Customers can expect improved comfort and humidity control, too.
- Heating innovation for HVAC 2014 goes to WaterFurnace, a producer of geothermal heating and cooling systems. WaterFurnace’s 7 Series product line features a soft-start compressor that runs at variable capacity, an electronically commutated motor (ECM) in the blower that’s also capable of variable speeds and a variable pump for the geothermal loops. The innovative system scales its output to the exact heating or cooling load of the home, bypassing the limiting high or low operations of standard geothermal systems.
- Water-heater efficiency is at its peak through the efforts of plumbing leader Rheem Manufacturing Company, which has produced the most efficient water heater on the market. With an energy factor (EF) rating of 2.45, the new unit also features technology that allows the system to communicate with other Rheem products and employs safety features such as dry-fire protection and an auto-shutoff component that shuts down the system when water levels fall below the desired level.
- Next-generation ventilation technologies by Big Ass Fans boost efficiency and comfort at the same time. The company boasts a ceiling fan that greatly surpasses Energy Star requirements by an astonishing 450 percent. The Haiku ceiling fan features seven-speed controls to promote optimal air circulation in any space and for any season. Using the natural-breeze option, home occupants can feel 40 percent cooler, while the lowest setting circulates warm air without creating a wind-chill effect. The ceiling fan promotes efficient operation while enhancing comfort in winter and summer, and it even comes with a sleep timer.
